This challenge at 365 cards is to use at least 2 different patterned papers for the background, making sure they don't overlap. I made a birthdaycard for my friend´s daughter:
KennyK stamp Download Diva, two patterned papers, I used Retro Flower punch to make flowers of the same paper I used for the background, and Fiskars borderpunch for the border, and a little glitterglue.
A very fun challenge at 365 cards, Nautical. I´m a huge pirate-fan, so I made a pirate birthday-card:
The ship (looks a little like Sparrows beloved Pearl!) is cut from a 12' x 12' paper, the palmtree an the rock in the right corner cut from the same paper as the ship. Gems as coconuts, a few flags and a crab. Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate´s life for me!
Since I´ll be doing both WIPocalypse and Crazy January Challenge this year, I thought it would be a good idea to join TUSAL(TotalyUselessStitch-a-long). I´ve seen fotos of jars with bits of yarn, and been wondering what´s it about. Then I found the answer in Daffycat ´s blog: you simply put all the small bits of yarn that you cut of when you stitch, and put them in a jar. Then take a foto of the jar once a month, and post your progress on your blog, and on Daffycats blog. Now, time to find a nice jar and start working on filling it :)
So, my very first WIPocalypse report, yay! I just joined a few days before deadline so that´s why this is almost a last minute post.
First up: Scarlet Wizard by Dimensions. This is where I left it a few years ago...:
And here´s my progress:
He finaly has a face :)
The second one: Legend of Zelda stained glass, my first CJC 2012 start, this is how far I got:
And my progress, 2 pages of 20 :
I really love stitching this, I´m a HUGE Zelda-fan!
Ok, on to the CJC:
Start 11: HAED Cinderella:
Start 12 and 13: Home Sweet home pillows
Start 14 and 15: Gingham hearts:
I made it! 15 new WIPs. I also have 15 UFOs that will be a part of this, but they are not listed yet, I´m just glad I kept up with starting a new one every day for 15 days.
It´s blogging about it thats a little late. Lazy, who, me?
All these starts are also part of the WIPocalypse.
I have more UFOs/WIPs than I ever will be able to finish... unless I join something like WIPocalypse! This is a wonderful way to stay motivated, and actually get something done. I love starting new projects, and new and wonderful designs just keep on coming... And as I also joined the Crazy January challenge I´ll have 15 new WIPs... and also 15 UFOs will be part of the Crazy january challenge. So I know what I´ll be doing this year!
I signed up yesterday, at the last minute, last day to sign up is 15th of january.
This will be fun, my poor forgotten UFOs will finaly see some daylight, for the first time in a few years.
